KARACHI: Former Muttahida Qaumi Movement- Pakistan (MQM-P) member and Member of National Assembly from Karachi’s NA-239 constituency, Salman Mujahid Baloch, on Friday announced to join rival Pak Sarzaeem Party, ARY News reported.
Salman Baloch, who was recently expelled from MQM, announced his decision in a press conference alongside PSP chief Mustafa Kamal and party leaders Raza Haroon and Anees Qaimkhani.
Baloch, while blaming MQM-P for fooling masses, also claimed that the party’s chief Farooq Sattar and other leaders are in contact with MQM’s London chapter.
Salman Baloch repeated his claim that MQM-Pakistan is divided into two factions, led by Farooq Sattar and Amir Khan. He named Kamran Tessori, Kunwar Naveed and Khawaja Sohail as part of Sattar-led group while Faisal Sabzwari and Khawaja Izhar as part of Amir Khan group.
Back in October, MQM-P revoked party membership of Salman Baloch for violating the party’s code of conduct after sneering at the bigwigs of MQM-P allegedly for establishing contact with the Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP).
The party members were directed to cut off their contacts with Baloch after his expulsion from the party.
